Stakeholder Engagement Plan

Communicating with our stakeholders in a healthy and efficient manner is of utmost importance to us. As a project with a great number of stakeholders of diverse attributes, we run our communication activities within the framework of our Stakeholder Engagement Plan (SEP) created in conformance with the IFC Standards. SEP encompasses a great deal of important information including our stakeholders, communication channels, instruments, and complaints procedure. As there may be some changes in the advanced stages of the Project, we regard the SEP as a living document and we intend to update it on a regular basis. For detailed information, please study our Stakeholder Engagement Plan.

Public Consultation Process

Within the scope of 1915Çanakkale Bridge and Motorway Project, a Public Consultation Process was held in January 2018, in conformance with the IFC Performance Standards. During this process, Project documents including the ESIA draft report have been shared with our stakeholders through extensive field activities, and kept open for public comment for 30 days. The process was aimed at communicating with individuals and organizations who think they have been impacted by the Project on any level at all. In this context, 68 non-governmental organizations were invited and over 1000 people participated in the activities. All the feedback and comments have been taken into consideration during the final phase of the ESIA studies which also included the SEP.

For detailed information, please study our ESIA – Public Consultation Process report.

Guide to Land Acquisition and Compensation

The land acquisition and compensation process of the 1915Çanakkale Bridge and Motorway Project is run by the General Directorate of Highways. To provide correct and efficient information for the stakeholders who may have questions about the process, a Guide to land Acquisition and Compensation (GLAC) has been created. This document is not only shared on our website but it has also been distributed in 32 villages located along the route of the Project and are impacted by the expropriation process.
